Consider the curves y = x^2and y = mx, where m is some positive constant. No matter what positive constant m is, the two curves enclose a region in the first quadrant.Without using a calculator, find the positive constant m such that the area of the region

bounded by the curves y = x^2 and y = mx is equal to 8.

I would very much appreciate it if someone could find the answer and explain how you did it.
